Could the day become any worse? One afternoon, my grandmother was looking for houses, I wanted to go to the mall before 8 because there a huge sale. Suddenly the car started to make disturbing noises, when we stopped at the stoplight the car cut off and begun to overheat! The mall was already about to close and the car was steaming! So we decided to relax and turn the radio on. My favorite song came on and the man on the radio offered $200,000 to the first caller, we called and won the money! My aunt and I called my grandmother to tell her the amazing news, she said “ this would be the perfect time to go on vacation!” so my family decided we would like to travel within the united states and while there, we would visit the cities of New York City, Hollywood, and Miami.
The first city my family will visit is New York City! When my family and I arrive we will check into a room at the Plaza Hotel. I will take my sister and little cousin on the balcony to see the beautiful view! Kinslea my sister will be ecstatic when she sees the lights from the huge towers and shops above us. Soon later, my family and I will go to time square to see all of the unique shops, I will purchase a few outfits for the trip. When we return back to our room we will dress up for supper at the view on the 48th floor, we will relax and watch the alluring view of the city as we revolve around and enjoy our meal. I will order my favorite food steak! When we arrive back to the room I will slip

Beth was an interesting woman to say the least. She was very talkative and had an eccentric personality. She might have been a smidge under the influence on this very normal afternoon but she was still a nice and fun person to talk to. Ashley and Kevin and I got to know her and all about her family all too well sitting at the bar at TGI Friday’s.
“The best things in life are the people we love the places we’ve been…. And the memories we’ve made along the way.” by Unknown. 2017 started off terrible but then soon got better from a little help from God. My family found out we won a trip to Hawaii. My parents were deciding whether or not they should take us kids with, my brothers Chris was 18, Matt was 11, Nic was 8, and I was 15. Then my parents talked and the decided that it would be our last family vacation with just our family saying chris went to college the next year and probably will find a girlfriend. Hawaii I know made me look at life a different was saying everything that just happened to me.
My first trip to Disney World, now that, that was a memorable trip. That trip was one of the most magical and happiest memories of my life. It was back in 2008, I had just turned 6 years old a few months before we left to go there. It was summertime, and the weather was perfect. I remember being so bored on the way there because I am an only child so I didn’t have anyone to entertain me besides myself. My mom’s side of the family went on this trip with us, and at the time I was the only grandkid, and the only kid at all. So once we finally were almost there I remember passing the big ‘Welcome to Disney World” sign and being so excited I peed my pants--my mom was pretty mad, but my dad thought it was kinda funny so I didn’t get in too much trouble.
Often times when a new president is elected, issues in office are usually faint and non-existent, but when the 43rd president of the United States (George W. Bush) was put into office all of the sunny days and laughter went away. Personally, I would disagree with the amount of work accomplished while he was in office. There should never be a time when any duties sought out for the president should be put aside for “vacation”.
This year on Spring Break my family went on vacation to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. We traveled there a couple of times when I was younger, but don’t have any memories except for the flight. I want to share two favorite things that were awesome about our trip, the food and the gift shops. I really enjoyed both of them because the food tasted delicious and the gift shops had a bunch of cool items such as chocolate, medication, beach towels, and a lot of expensive jewelry and antiques that just cost too much.
Before spring break had started I took a vacation to florida. Me, my sister, my baby sister, my grandma, my mom, and my mom’s boyfriend all flew to florida, it took us three hours to get there. When we had finally arrived I was ecstatic, even though I had been to florida two times when I was younger, it was even better this time.
As a child, I believed that I was invincible. Nothing stood in my way and if it did, I just tore the obstacle down from the source. Whether it was trees to climb, pools to jump in, or wild hair getting in my way; I always overcame them. There was point in my childhood though, I realized not everything was under my control and power. I didn’t receive everything I desired like I was believing. My childhood untainted mind was rocked with a new discovery and mindset. Of all places for this change to happen, it was on a family vacation to Disney World.
It is a torrential, snowy day in late December in Point Pleasant, New Jersey. Outside lies men in coats as thick as armor trying to plow away the snow as it falls. Their hands are numb and their efforts are proved useless in such long waves of endless snow. You are trying to navigate through the storm along the streets in a cold, metal car. Snowflakes pile on the windshield and block your view of the road. This does not seem like a lot of thrilling excitement! I know our family would better benefit from being elsewhere rather than being huddled up by a fire inside the house. I want our family to take a trip to Florida during winter break because our family could escape from cold weather, it would be another amazing place to bond as a family, and it would be an inexpensive trip if planned well.
I took off a few weeks ago for a TDY trip, and after returning had an opportunity to take a couple weeks of vacation prior to instructing a four month training course starting on 11JUL16. We picked up my children, and traveled around for a couple of weeks visiting family. I know that doesn't fit the traditional, excused absence policy, but I needed to spend time with my children since I only see them once, maybe twice, a year depending on deployments. It was for me as much as the children also. There was an opportunity, and I took it. I would rather lose money for a course than feel guilty as a
Where in the world would you most likely want to visit?! I chose the Bahamas because it would seem like a very nice and beautiful vacation spot to go to. The capital of the bahamas is Nassau and the place I would love to stay at is in the Grand bahamas. Someday, I will take my mom and brother on a vacation to a city they have never been to before they would be so happy. I would be very excited! To go there because it seems like stuff I would want to do before I die. Even though, there is way more places I would like to visit out of state that is my main one that I chose. I've seen pictures on the internet of the bahamas and it looks so perfect and so pretty! That is one of my goals. I love the way the water looks and it just looks like the
For my summer vacation I went to three main places .In the beginning of summer at the first part I went to Twin Falls Idaho with my Dad . We rented a car and explored the state .Apart from seeing a bunch of potato farms we saw lots of volcanic rocks and a HUGE canyon it had massive trees growing out of the rocks and at the bottom of the canyon there was a canoe trial and a golf course .A week later I found me and my family were going to Poland . The plane trip was around 11 hours ,9 hours to Germany and 2 hours to Poland The plane wasn't really relaxing the passenger in front of me had his seat pulled back the whole flight so I had no leg space .My sister was also a pain because of the constant nagging .My Grandma had come to picks us up since we were staying at her house for the next 3 weeks . When we arrived at my grandparents house it's as if i traveled back in time to the 1940’s everything was so outdated and behind, . Since my grandparents lived at a farm I had the urge to explore . I walked around the massive barn that was hiding behind the house and while exploring I stepped into a massive pile of cow poop .Luckily for my sneakers I only stepped into it with my toe . I walked into the bathroom to start scrubbing the poop of my sneakers .When I finished that I walked into the kitchen where everyone was sitting to find out my grandma had a prepared enough food to feed a block full of people.
Today is the first day in my five day vacation all over california. I started in sunset cliffs natural park where I got to experience a beautiful sight of southern california. It was right on the beach there was crashing waves and a beautiful sunset to go along with it. The hike along the coast was breathtaking.

Now that I’m older and more mature, I believe that I now understand the meaning of Christmas better but I am not as excited for the holiday than I was as a child. Last Christmas Eve, I was excited for my brothers and grandparents coming down from the city. I would have to wake up really early in the morning to clean the whole house, such as, sweeping the halls and cleaning the dinner tables. While I was cleaning, my mother started cooking and taking out the turkey out of the fridge, that has been prepared and marginated since the day before. I would take small breaks just so I could watch her because she was using my great grandmother's recipe which consisted of using twenty tomatoes for the sauce. My eyes would burn as she cut the tomatoes and onions since the acidity mixed together, then she would put them in a huge pot along with putting in chicken broth and hispanic peas. When she started to heat up the sauce, the aroma filled the whole house and my mouth water already imagining what it would taste like. The sauce was my favorite part of the food since it was so savory and delicious, it was hard not to enjoy it. My mother would bathe the turkey with the sauce and each beadlet of sauce would either be soaked up or slide off the turkey’s back, it was very beautiful in a weird way. After bathing the turkey, she would put the turkey in the oven and on occasion she would do the same progress again, but just in the oven. The next step was making mash potatoes, which went
From the outside, my life consists of all happy moments. My friends, family and teachers all see me as a bubbly, positive girl that is full of curiosity and energy. There is this one secret that only I know. Holidays scare me. Starting at the age of fourteen, I began to realize that I have a fear of holidays. As holidays start to approach, I become nervous and anxious. I love Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years, but my fear consists of my parents. As an only child and having all my extended family members living in Malaysia, I spend holidays celebrating with my parents. Holidays for me can either turn out to be good or bad. When I was little, my parents would have a big fight or argument at least once a year and it typically happened during the holidays. These fights always ended with my parents not talking to each other for days. My parents would talk to me about their problems and as an only child, I did not know how to deal with it. When these fights happened, I use to think it was my fault. I would cry while they would argue and continue to cry when I took a shower. The thought of my parents being mad at each other, made me sad and frustrated because there was nothing I can do. As I grew older, I realized that these fights were not my fault. I should not put the blame on myself. I learned to understand that married couples sometimes fight and adults have so much daily pressure they carry on their backs that little situations can become big
